Finally Checking It Out – Shatter

is an 80s comic & its claim to fame is it was the first comic book drawn with a computer.  I think it was done with a first generation Apple Mac & one of the interesting things in the notes of the book is Apple wanted to be distanced from the book because they wanted to be machines for businessmen, not toys for artists.  Anyway, the art, design, & visual storytelling in this are solid.  It’s clearly influenced by blade runner & the story is adequate though not amazing.  If you like dystopian sci-fi comics or quirky pieces of art technology history, it’s definitely worth checking out.
